Robotics Equipment

McQuaid Jesuit robotics and engineering programs access a full range of design and fabrication tools in a new robotics/ engineering lab placed into service in 2018. Students in robotics build on expertise gained in PLTW engineering courses and work with robotics mentors to design and produce parts using manufacturing processes such as 3D printing, lathing and milling. Students are strongly advised to enroll in the Introduction to PLTW Engineering Design course to acquire the necessary CAD skills to start the creation process. Active mentorship by industry professionals is a hallmark of the robotics program and ensures techniques and industry standards become part of the student skill set during his extended time with the program.
